The program features opening images from jpg, bmp, gif or emf formats. Conversion of colours to DMC or Anchor with optional re-size, dithering and/or blending of threads (DMC only). The program features Back Stitch creation, Back Stitch creation over a high res image, Merge Colours and Crop image. The stitched picture can be on fabric from almost any thread count from 6 to 40 stitches per inch. The chart can be printed out at almost any size from 3 to 40 symbols per inch.
The Chart printout can include all or any of the following:
- Front Page
Index page (with optional chart page cross reference image)
Colour Chart (with optional simple key on page)
Detailed Key in two forms. For blended or unblended threads. A thread length calculation is included, with thread length being partially dependant on image complexity, more complex = longer thread.
Fabric details with image complexity assessment.
Furthermore, I am prepared to listen to suggestions and incorporate them if possible.
Edited to add:
Now includes a comprehensive vector based image editor, and the colour conversion routine offers you more control over the conversion than any other program (commercial or free) and is totally unique in allowing you to specify your own dither pattern parameters should you so desire. Comes with three built-in thread colour definition files (DMC, DMC Monochrome and Anchor) and allows you to define and register your own thread colour definition files. If you define your own thread colour definition file, the act of registration creates a blend list based on the closest matching blends, expanding the available thread colours enormously - another unique feature.
Edited further to add:
Now saves pdf files, creates an accurate, full size, mock-up of the finished picture and shows which thread colours are used on each page so you don't have to fully kit up the project before starting.
